Garth Stands Firm


The Croke Park ticket refunds began yesterday, but Garth Brooks 'Ultimate Hits' takes a third week at No1 on the Irish Album Chart this week.

Ed Sheeran and 5 Seconds Of Summer are both non-movers at No2 and No3, ahead of Morrissey whose tenth solo studio album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' is the highest new entry at No4. This marks a return to Top 10 chart form - his previous release 'Years Of Refusal' reached No12 in 2009, whereas 'You Are The Quarry' (2004) and 'Ringleader Of The Tormentors' (2006) both debuted at No3. The only other new entry in this week's Top 30 is for London soul duo Jungle with their self-titled debut arriving at No15.

There's little movement at the top of the Singles Chart, with Ella Henderson holding at No1 for a fourth week with 'Ghost', John Legend steady at No2 with 'All Of Me' and Coldplay still at No3 with 'A Sky Full Of Stars'. Following their international breakthrough in USA, Canada, Sweden and Australia, Manchester 4-piece Rixton claim this week's highest new entry at No12 with their debut single 'Me And My Broken Heart'. OneRepublic's 'Love Runs Out' is the next new entry at No27, the band's sixth appearance on this chart, four places ahead of the third new entry - Nicole Scherzinger at No30 with her eighth solo hit 'Your Love'.
